Morning flight at Austerlitz

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Here's an amazing aerial view of a historical monument in the Netherlands, compliments of contributor rengervanesveld.  The Pyramid of Austerlitz is situated on the Utrecht Ridge, in the province of the same name.  It was constructed by Napoleon's soldiers in 1804.  It was shortly thereafter renamed in honor of the Battle of Austerlitz, the great 1805 battle which is considered Napoleon's greatest victory.  The pyramid shape of the base was inspired by Napoleon's earlier conquests in Egypt.
